Not sure where to start? Here are 5 recommendations for you to try today!
1. Restoran Hua Mui
Restoran Hua Mui, established in 1946, is synonymous with Hainanese Chicken Chop in Johor Bahru. A favourite among the locals and visitors alike, the chicken chop here has set the benchmark for taste, which is hard to be replicated by others.
Want to know what the original chicken chop tastes like? It’s crunchy on the outside but tender and succulent on the inside, paired with tangy brown sauce that does not sog your chicken chop. Perfect for that crisp ASMR crunch that can get you drooling!
2. Let’s Eat (Non-Halal)
Let’s Eat has perfected the combo of Chicken Chop with Rice, making it a hearty meal for Malaysians who must have rice at every meal time. Unlike the ‘traditional’ chicken chop we know and love, its chicken chop is not served with brown sauce. The chicken chop has a coating with secret ingredients and is flavourful on its own.
The chicken chop with rice is served with a generous portion of coleslaw, which gives a surprising refreshing sensation in your mouth, and is very appreciated in our humid weather.
3. JBorn Cafe & Bistro
Homegrown JBorn Cafe & Bistro is famed for its Nasi Goreng Daging. The fluffy and aromatic fried rice has the right amount of heat to tease your palate. It is generous with its meat and chopped long beans, making it a well-balanced one-dish meal.
They say, when eating Nasi Goreng, you must have soup on the side. Well, JBorn’s Nasi Goreng Daging does come with soup on the side, awesome kan! You can savour it on its own or drizzle some on the fried rice to give it that extra flavour.
4. Meng Kitchen (Non-Halal)
What distinguishes KL Hokkien Mee from other Hokkien noodles is the darker and fragrant sauce. At Meng Kitchen, this braised thick noodles never had its recipe modified for ages and still fried with lard to maintain its authenticity.
The noodles is al dente that gives you that satisfying chew, well-coated with the dark, rich sauce, and slippery through your chopsticks. This stir-fried wonder is a must when you’re hungry and you need something simple yet delicious.
5. Nasi Ayam Kee Chup
Your usual chicken rice would have your poultry steamed or roasted. What’s special about Nasi Ayam Kee Chup, a play on the word ‘kicap’, is that the chicken is marinated with soy sauce and deep fried!
It is a wonder that the soy-marinated chicken does not burn in the process of deep frying in hot oil. The chicken has a hint of sweet caramelisation with a nice balance of saltiness. If you’re so used to steamed or roasted chicken with your chicken rice, give this dish a try and you’ll be very pleased.
